Sauti Sol main man attacks blogger

13 April 2016, 19:05 Eugene Odanga

Nairobi - Blood was spilt on social media today after Sauti Sol’s lead singer Bien Baraza viciously attacked and maimed a local blogger.

The maiming was as a result of an article written by Ghafla’s Laitema Munya titled ‘From Sauti Sol To Kansoul, Here Are Five Most Expendable Music Group Members’.

In the article, the blogger names guitarist Polycarp Otieno as being the most expendable member of the group, something that rubbed the group's lead singer the wrong way. He came to the defence of his lead guitarist and source of the unique Sauti Sol sound in a post on social media.

The vicious post on his Facebook account read.

“You stupid journalist. You should research before you write these articles. Then again I forget blogs like these only hire the bottom of the pyramid of journalists to write. Polycarp is the SautiSol sound. His guitar is our signature. Second Polycarp is the producer of many if not most of the tracks in the Sauti Sol album LIVE & DIE IN AFRIKA. Tracks like Nerea, Kuliko Jana and unconditionally Bae are Polycarp productions. He has also produced hits for other artists such as Dela's Swahili cover of hello, Susana Owiyo's "Wa miela" Tanzania's Lady Jay Dee and others.

" He is the music director of Sauti Sol's live act that is touring 6 cities this month. You are invited to come witness his greatness in Nakuru on Saturday. Hopefully you will find positive things to write about. That said if you ask me YOU are the one in the right place at the right time. I mean how else do you explain someone so shallow on a platform like this that influences the masses. Good day.”
